The position will be mainly dedicated to Joint Venture audits.
The Joint Operating Agreement signed between the partners of the Joint Venture usually grants audit rights to non-operator partners in order to ensure that their interests are dully preserved.
Joint Venture audits are a tool for non-operator partners, who have limited influence over the Operator’s conduct in day-to-day operations, that allows them to review in depth all contractual, procedural, financial and business aspects of the Joint Venture to provide assurance that all obligations have been met and according to the contracts signed between partners.
The position therefore requires a strong focus on quantitative and qualitative analysis, processing of industry related accounting and financial data and research abilities paired with natural curiosity of understanding the oil and gas sector and high tolerance for non-linear workstreams and tight deadlines.

- Analyze market and regulatory environment materials necessary to understand relevant aspects of business operations in specific geographies.
- Attend client meetings and interviews to gather data and information key to the project, such as financial parameters, operational details, accounting information, etc.
- Execute risk assessments, data analysis, audit programs, testing approaches based on project’s manager guidance.
- Produce quality audit work papers and audit reports.
- Being an analyst in the oil and gas group of Kroll also means that the candidate will:
- Aspire to become an expert in the oil and gas sector and connected industries, providing insights and expertise to our clients. This includes understanding principal industry drivers, macroeconomic trends, strategic shifts in the industry, regulatory changes and financial aspects of the industry.
- Balance priorities and interactions with the manager in charge of the project to ensure that expectations are met within the applicable policies and technical and professional limits.
- Work with a “think-outside-the-box” approach and in a multidisciplinary team including petroleum-related engineers.
- Create and update presentations such as sales support materials and proposals, client reports, amongst others.
- Bachelor's degree in Finance, Accounting, Economics or similar or Petroleum Engineering or similar with a strong interest in Finance.
- Minimum current cumulative GPA of 85.
